4.8 web scanner service terminated
« on: June 02, 2008, 01:22:23 AM »
I've looked through several posts but all i can find is fixes for older versions of avast. i'm running version 4.8 on Mozilla Firefox 3.0 and 2.0.0.14 and getting the following error:

The avast! Web Scanner service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 2 time(s).




i have terminated web shield, but i'm wondering if there is a fix for the problem.



Thanks for the help

Have you tried uninstall avast with aswClear.exe?

1.Download aswClear.exe on to your desktop.

2.Start Windows in Safe Mode

3.Open (execute) the uninstall utility

4.Click REMOVE

5.Restart your computer

Afetr finish uninstall then try reinstall back avast.
